Mushroom Bisque

Sarah, where have you been? You haven’t posted in, like, forever. Um, good question. I’ll answer that in a moment. If you are new here, welcome. I usually post twice a week, except for when I go AWOL for three weeks. It has only been three, right? Feels like forever… I almost forgot how much…

Squash Pear Soup

Toronto has committed a false spring. The weather became warmer, the snow melted, and I was feeling ready for summer. Except it stormed a few days later, the air is frigid, and hand lotion can no longer heal my dry skin. In other words, Toronto pulled a “hey, you want spring? Here’s spring! Yeah, you want…

Carob “Hot Chocolate”

Let’s keep it real. Today, I’d like to make a confession about… Coffee. If you have been following me for a while, you’ll know that I love coffee. In one previous post, I discuss the types of coffee. In another, I talk about the types of coffee drinkers. Then there’s the Maple Cinnamon Latte post,…

Peanut Butter Bark (Low-Carb)

There’s no wrong way to make food. After all, cooking is a creative process. Foods and spices are like colors you mix together to create a culinary masterpiece.

After all, nothing brings people together like free food. “Want a blondie?” a friend offered me. I asked what those were, and she replied,…

Vegan Banana Waffles

Pop the champagne, blow the balloons, and pass out the cake, it’s time to celebrate! After years of waiting, I have acquired… (drum roll, please) a waffle maker! Yes, this is a big deal. Don’t judge me. During a casual conversation with my sister-in-law, I mentioned that I like waffles, to which she replied, “You…

Protein Granola Balls

Many adults like to think themselves young at heart, but some are young in appearance as well. I happen to fall into the latter category. Here’s a rule to live by: Never assume age. Whether you guess too young or too old, it can be offensive. Too many times I met someone new and they…

Easy Chocolate Drops

Life is about finding balance: healthy eating and sweet indulgences, work and play, dark and light, fire and water, yin and yang, and socializing and solitude. Therefore, last week’s Gluten-Free Vanilla Cupcakes must be countered with today’s chocolate recipe. High-quality dark chocolate is actually beneficial to one’s health. It is rich in antioxidants, improves cognitive…

Goodbye Summer Snap Peas

Late September can mean one of two things: You are beginning to adjust to the new routine of school/work. You are wondering if you will ever adjust to it. The hardest part of an enforced schedule is at the start: waking up early. No one wants to leave a warm bed and stagger onto the…

Maple Spiced Nuts

Bring out the fingerless gloves and throw some pumpkin spice in the air, because autumn is here! For those with their glass of apple cider half-empty, they see the days getting shorter, the plants dying, bipolar weather, dry skin, catching colds, and they complain about people who won’t shut up about fall, while they themselves…
